Is the president you saw last night someone you would trust to lead us through the toughest challenges our country faces?
Nope. I don’t think so.
All I saw last night was Biden attempting to gaslight the American people with disingenuous claims about his “leadership.” We could spend all day debunking his lies – but I’ll leave you with the top five that stuck out to me. (Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive list. If you have anything you’d like to add, please share by adding to this form here.)
#1 BORDER CRISIS. Biden spent about four lines talking about the border (and one of those lines was promoting amnesty). He brought up the fentanyl crisis without once mentioning what’s causing it – the drug cartels. The Sinaloa and Jalisco cartels are the main suppliers of fentanyl coming into this country and killing over 70,000 Americans a year. Since Biden took office, there have been over 4.5 million illegal crossings at our southern border.
#2 GAS PRICES. Biden claimed he’s responsible for bringing gas prices down. What Biden didn’t mention was that the only reason gas prices reached record levels in the first place is Joe Biden himself. He canceled the Keystone pipeline, blocked new drilling on federal lands, and crushed the oil and gas industry with excessive regulations. The fact remains that the national average is still over a dollar more than when Biden took office.
#3 SOCIAL SECURITY. This was perhaps the biggest lie of the night. Biden claimed Republicans would end Social Security. No Republican is discussing doing this. The truth is Democrats will, by their own inaction and reckless spending, inevitably cause automatic cuts to Social Security.
#4 DEFICIT. Biden claimed he had record decreases in the deficit, and that President Trump is the one who spent all our money and increased our deficit to record levels. He’s forgetting that the increase in the deficit under Trump’s presidency was because of COVID spending during his last year in office. Why did we need COVID spending? To save small businesses that were being crushed because of Democrat lockdowns. That’s what caused the deficit increase under the Trump Administration. In Biden’s first two years as president, he’s already surpassed what Trump’s deficit spending was during his first three years.
#5 JOBS/ECONOMY. Biden claimed he “created a record 12 million new jobs.” Here’s the harsh reality: 2.6 million fewer Americans are participating in the U.S. labor force compared to before COVID-19. Democrat-imposed lockdowns caused the economic pain which we are still feeling today. When Biden took office, inflation was at just 1.4%. The December Consumer Price Index came in at 6.5%. More Americans than ever before say they are worse off financially under this administration.
So those were the top five claims from Biden’s SOTU that I wanted to debunk for you today. There were many more problems I had with the speech – like not once mentioning Iran, North Korea, or the multitude of foreign policy failures under his presidency.
What else would you add? Let me know here.
